This is pretty interesting.  Kerri Smith has written/illustrated some amazing books about creativity which have been inspiring me a lot lately.  This article on her blog is honest, but also encouraging – and it is encouraging in itself that her honesty can produce encouragement!  That said, I suspect she perhaps doesn’t realise that she’s in a comparitively privileged position.  For many of us creativity is something we have to find a way to achieve, despite our lives.  Kerri Smith makes her living as an artist so in that sense she’s got it there in her job description!  Anyway, it makes an interesting read.  I’d love to know what you think.
